Curriculum | Music and Drama

Music

Our inspiring Music lessons include singing, performing and composing. We have a wide range of instruments to enthuse and excite the girls, including a grand piano, variety of percussion instruments and electric keyboards. There are also a number of practice rooms available for individual lessons and rehearsals.

Emphasis is placed on public performance and all girls have the opportunity to take part in at least one production a year. The girls also have the opportunity to develop performance confidence through musical solos during lessons – affectionately known as ‘mini-concert time’ - and in Music Assemblies.

As part of our outreach programme, groups of girls visit local residential homes to perform small musical concerts including carols at Christmas, and songs and instrument performances at other times of the year. The Chamber Choir and Maltman’s Belles ensembles are regularly invited to perform at various local events including the annual Chalfont St Peters Feast Day and Gerrards Cross Summer Fair.

Drama

Drama threads throughout our whole creative curriculum. Games and activities build confidence, improve vocal skills, physicality, innovation and unlock the imagination.

In the Prep School, our girls can further explore their thespian tendencies in extra-curricular speech and drama clubs, working towards LAMDA Verse and Prose or Acting examinations once a year.

Year 4 embrace an all-singing, all-dancing production at the end of the Spring Term and Year 5 enjoy ‘Play in a Day’. The final highlight of the Drama calendar is the delightful Year 6 leavers performance.

All our productions take place in our Lapraik Hall, a multi-use performance space which is home to a fully equipped, state-of-the-art lighting and sound system.
